When she reluctantly joins Andrew's ballroom dance class, she realizes that ballroom dancing isn't all she has to learn. Can she trust her heart to follow her feet and make the right moves?
The Dance Lesson is a quick, fun read about learning to take a chance with both dancing and love.
While waiting for her daughter’s dance lesson to be over, Doreen is approached by Andrew, a dance instructor. Because of her perfect posture and her manner of holding herself, Andrew guesses that Doreen is a dancer and she tells him that she took ballroom classes during college.
Andrew tries to convince her to take his class. Doreen is reluctant, thinking herself too rusty, and rather nervous about her lack of a dance partner. Even so, Andrew encourages her to give dancing another chance.
Will Doreen rise to the challenge? Will she overcome her insecurities? Will Andrew be her dance partner for life?
Doreen’s emotions are strong in this story and the reader becomes involved. You can’t help but cheer her on and encourage her to succeed. The Dance Lesson is a sweet, gentle story that will cheer up anyone who is having a bad day. Read it and enjoy.
